if only Britain had voted that Wallace cariacture, this path of needless election hell woulda be nipped in the bud

The state of British elections, everybody!

Elsewhere in the Midlands, the Labour leader, Jermy Corbyn, drove home his counter-message: that Mr. Johnson would sell out Britain’s state health system to a predatory Mr. Trump in a trade deal.  “We’ll never let Donald Trump get his hands on our National Health Service,” he thundered.

Mr. Corbyn painted a dystopian picture of a Tory-led Britain that would mimic Mr. Trump’s America.  “They’ll slash food standards to match the U.S.,” he said referring darkly to rat hairs in paprika and maggots in orange juice, “and they’ll put chlorinated chicken in our supermarket shelves.”

I understand the morphing of Boris Johnson with Donald Trump and the electoral appeal, and the calls of the danger of laxing standards to the almighty dollar… but What the Hell is he talking about?  Apparently…

For tomato juice, the FDA limits up to five fly eggs and one maggot per 100 grams, the equivalent of a small juice glass. Up to 15 fly eggs and one maggot per 100 grams is allowed for tomato paste and other pizza sauces. Mushrooms are granted more leeway – 20 maggots “of any size” per 100 grams of drained mushrooms or 15 grams of dried mushrooms.’

Hm.  Did not know that.

Oh Yeah well… We all eat bugs, because… our food comes out of places that are surrounded by bugs and… bugs remain …
It does present the interesting question of the natural food people in the equation of the Labour Party’s electoral coalitions… but maybe that’s left to the “wine track” Lib Dems.
